Resetting the epigenome and function of aged hematopoietic stem cells via transcription factor reprogramming The physiological process of aging is invariably accompanied by a diminished capacity to maintain proper tissue function and to regenerate tissues after injury. The fact that these processes are mediated by tissue-specific stem cells has implicated age-dependent stem cell decline in...

Mid-life modifications of mitochondrial fission/fusion that slow aging: molecular mechanisms to pharmacological treatments Healthy mitochondria—the tiny “power plants of the cell”—are critical to the proper function of our cells, tissues, and organs. But with age, our cells accumulate damaged mitochondria. This accumulation has been implicated in numerous age-related...
